  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We now upgrade AGTC to the opportunity represented by a company: (1) now trading at 64% of 30 March 2019 cash, and (2) with important phase I/II data through 1H20 on 3 different programs (ACHM-A3, ACHM-B3, XLRP). We continue to flag the delays AGTC has had over the years in reporting datasets in achromatopsia A3 (ACHM-A3), achromatopsia X- linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP). The delays occurred as innovative companies like MeiraGTx (Buy, a Therapeutics (acquired by unrated Biogen) made progress with competing inherited retinal disease franchises (see research below). Despite the AGTC delays, we note that good science sometimes takes time to develop; and, industry participants recognize the soundness of AGTC’s science and broader capabilities, even if execution has been slow." (9/3/2019)
  • 3. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Valuation and risks to price target achievement. We maintain our Buy rating $12 price target. Our valuation is based on our clinical net present value (NPV) model, which allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug’s potential commercial profile. Currently the ACHM programs contribute 55% to our valuation, with the remaining 45% coming from XLRP. Factors which could impede reaching our price target include failed or inconclusive clinical trials or inability of the company to secure adequate funding to progress its drugs through the development pathway."
